Long non-coding RNA Knowledgebase (lncRNAKB) is an integrated resource for exploring lncRNA biology in the context of tissue-specificity and disease association. A systematic integration of annotations from six independent databases resulted in 77,199 human lncRNA (224,286 transcripts). The user-friendly knowledgebase covers a comprehensive breadth and depth of lncRNA annotation. lncRNAKB is a compendium of expression patterns, derived from analysis of RNA-seq data in thousands of samples across 31 solid human normal tissues (GTEx). Thousands of co-expression modules identified via network analysis and pathway enrichment to delineate lncRNA function are also accessible. Millions of expression quantitative trait loci (cis-eQTL) computed using whole genome sequence genotype data (GTEx) can be downloaded at lncRNAKB that also includes tissue-specificity, phylogenetic conservation and coding potential scores. Tissue-specific lncRNA-trait associations encompassing 323 GWAS (UK Biobank) are also provided. LncRNAKB is accessible at http://www.lncrnakb.org/, and the data are freely available through Open Science Framework (https://doi.org/10.17605/OSF.IO/RU4D2).
